News organizations have a duty to their sources who risk everything to disclose fraud, abuse, harassment and other unethical or illegal acts.

Join this session to learn technological and relationship best practices, understand how to help protect and partner with sources, including anonymous ones, and hear advice for how to support those who decide to speak up.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone who believes it is their responsibility to protect whistleblowers
  • Newsrooms looking for guidance and best practices for partnering with high-sensitivity sources
  • Reporters interested in building and maintaining anonymous sources
